Five things we just learned about PlayStation's 2016 lineup

We saw plenty of trailers and didn't get many release dates, but there's still some cool stuff in store.

Sony's Paris Games week press conference was big on promises (and light on release dates), but there are still some announcements worth taking a look at.

No Man's Sky is just around the corner

We finally have a release window for No Man's Sky. The exploration-focused sci-fi game will be arriving on the PlayStation 4 and PCs in June, 2016. That's still a little vague for my liking, but given that we've had little more than trailers and screenshots to go by for the last few months, some semblance of a release date is better than none at all.

Naughty Dog

Uncharted 4's multiplayer beta is arriving soon

Uncharted 4: Thief's End will be arriving on March 18, 2016 -- that's a few months later than the original fall 2015 release date, but the game was purportedly delayed so developer Naughty Dog could take a bit more time to get the ending right. If that's a bit too long to wait, mark your calendars: there'll be a multplayer beta running from December 4 to December 13, so you can get a taste of what's in store.

Gran Turismo makes its PS4 debut

Good news for racing fans: the legendary Gran Turismo series is coming to the PS4. Dubbed Gran Turismo Sport, it'll be arriving as a beta in early 2016. Gran Turismo will also be running an event dubbed the FIA Gran Turismo Championships that'll see players competing to represent their home country or their favorite car manufacturer. The players who win these championships will attend an awards ceremony hosted by FIA, and receive awards -- just like real, professional drivers. It's a bit of a quirky gimmick, but should be an interesting event to check out. There'll also be support for PlayStation VR, if you'd like a more immersive take on racing.

PlayStation VR gets a few game announcements

There's still a lot we don't know about PlayStation VR -- there's been no word of a release date, or how much it'll cost to get play in virtual reality on our PlayStation 4s. But we did get glimpses of a few new games that should be showing up sometime next year. I've already mentioned Gran Turismo Sport, which will support PlayStation VR. There's Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, an arcade-style shooter-on-rails that takes place in a rather horrific theme park. Crytek also announced Robinson: The Journey -- it involves dinosaurs, and a planet to explore. That's admittedly not much to go on, but dinosaurs are great, so this should be worth keeping an eye on.

Quantic Dream takes us to Detroit

And finally, there's Detroit. It's the latest from Quantic Dream, the developers of 2010's PS3 hit Heavy Rain, and imagines a future where Detroit is the industrial center of android manufacturing. One android has become self-aware and is left to wander a world where her kind are treated as second-class citizens. If it's anything like its predecessors, we're in for a narrative-heavy, visual treat.
